Course Description

250-Project Management Through Client Management

This course is intended to provide professionals with a different perspective in Project Management by addressing the Client’s needs in a Project Manager. The course will discuss the attributes that Clients expect and demand from the Professional that will be managing the project development.

The course will start with assessing the client, the project, and the professional's qualifications. This is followed by discussions of some of the client’s expectations, contracts, communications, relationships, and more. So many professionals fall short of what a client is looking for because the professional is focused on the technical aspects of the design and lose sight of the overall project development. This course is for all of those that honestly want to be a truly effective Project Manager for their Client and their company.

This course is an introduction on how to manage a project through managing the client.

Have you ever met a Project Manager that stated publicly that he's not a good project manager? Of course not! Every Project Manager believes he is a good manager. Part of being a good Project Manager includes working with the Client in the concept development, design, permitting, and construction process. Not working effectively with the Client in any one of these stages will pretty much eliminate you from future work with this Client. This course is for all of those that honestly want to be a truly effective Project Manager for their Client and their company.

Covered important concepts. Client litigiousness is perhaps one other factor I would through into the project evaluation mix. Emotional maturity, management psychology all go into long term success as well.

Overall good information. I wish the course description had specified that this was more relevant to a private sector engineer. I am a project manager but in the public sector. I seem to be defined as the client in this course so it was not as helpful as I had hoped it would be. But I can see that this would be great information for a private sector engineer.

This course contained a great deal of useful information I will immediately use in my work. However, I have a small suggestion that will make this course feel more accessible for a larger audience. It is a little antiquated to only use male pronouns throughout the text. Many of my client contacts are women, and this must be true for others as well. Thanks for considering this.
Good suggestion! Something we should keep in mind for all our courses. Thanks Margaret

VERY GOOD----Reminds me of a lot of the multitude of various issues that have arisen in my career: may want to consider more language that addresses private consultant to public client as that is such a large % of consulting/engineering business these days on infrastructure projects.
